Who Checks Commercial Vehicles? by EngRichie: 10:33am On Apr 10, 2019
And that was how I boarded a bus at Iwo road park in Ibadan.

We set out and within seconds, I realized that I was in a sick vehicle. Shortly we passed the road safety marshals check point and as usual, they don't bother commercial vehicles.

Our highest speed was in the vicinity of 65km/hr from my judgement and even the trucks were overtaking. That itself was risky.

No single guage in that car works, not even the coolant temperature guage.

After Oyo, the storm and then rain started and behold the wiper wasn't functional.

Again, the driver doesn't utilize the side mirrors well before attempting to change lane. On few occasions, vehicles behind had to be defensive in their driving else we could have hit them.

By God's mercy and grace, we arrived safely.

But what I care to know is; who have we offended in this country that nothing seems to work?

Well, part of the duties of road safety officers...but do they do their job? no. As citizens, won't we protest they are wasting our time if they wanna do their job? yes.
